Pelagic bird photography

A new article by Abe Borker on discusses the challenges of pelagic bird photography.

One of the topics Borker covers is the challenge of finding powerful compositional elements other than birds flying against the empty sky or sitting in the water. Breaking waves, other birds, the rising sun, or landscapes at the horizon can all add to the artistic appeal of your photographs. He also suggests trying extreme close-ups as a way to add variety to your photography session.

  1. Good article... thanks for sharing it.

    I find that just getting pelagic flying birds in focus is challenge enough !
